Why 5QP?

At 5QP we offer a slightly different approach to sports and strength training.

  • First off we start all of our athletes off with a Functional Movement Screen. The FMS screen allows us to identify any functional limitations and asymmetries that could hamper an athletes natural movement patterns. By finding and correcting these issues it helps our athletes be more balanced and reduces the risk of injury.
  • Secondly, we keep our groups small to allow us to focus more individual attention on each athlete. Many of our competitors coach in groups of 10 or more athletes per coach. Our goal is to keep the groups to around 5 athletes per coach. Coaching smaller groups not only allows us to keep our training fees reasonable but it also provides our athletes with superior service and attention to their specific needs.
  • Finally, if possible, we try to design our programs to include sport specific training as part of the package. This allows us to teach our athletes how to carry the work they put into the gym over to field. Our goal is to make sure our athletes are the best trained and well prepared athletes in the competition.

You’re Only As Strong As Your Weakest Link

At 5th Quarter Performance we make our athletes better by making their weaknesses their strengths. All our athletes begin their partnership with us by completing the Functional Movement Screen.

How Does the FMS Screen Work?

Put simply, the FMS is a ranking and grading system that documents movement patterns that are key to normal function. By screening these patterns, the FMS readily identifies functional limitations and asymmetries. These are issues that can reduce the effects of functional training and physical conditioning and distort body awareness.

The FMS generates the Functional Movement Screen Score, which is used to target problems and track progress. This scoring system is directly linked to the most beneficial corrective exercises to restore mechanically sound movement patterns.

Exercise professionals monitor the FMS score to track progress and to identify those exercises that will be most effective to restore proper movement and build strength in each individual.


We have seen too many athletes, especially at the high school level, fail to realize their true potential because of injuries. We want to to try and eliminate the risk of potential injury by helping our athletes become more functionally strong and balanced.

“The Functional Movement Screen is the foundation of our program. Everything we do builds off of it. We couldn’t imagine not using this program.” – Joe Torine, Head Strength Coach, Indianapolis Colts
